BioPharm Laboratories' liquid thrombin is a high purity bovine thrombin stabilized in 50% glycerin. Due to thombin's high proteolytic specificity, thombin is an important protein in recombinant fusion protein purification processes. It is used to cleave His Tags and GST Tags with a high degree of specificity. We express our units in US Units (aka, NIH Units) measured by coagulation. There are approximately 5 Thrombin cleavage units for every one US Unit.
